The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care assists health services to reduce the number of falls, and the resulting patient harm, through a number of national initiatives. This site includes Australia’s National Guidelines: Preventing Falls and Harm From Falls in Older People: Best Practice Guidelines for Australian Hospitals, Residential Aged Care Facilities and Community Care 2009. The guidelines provide a consistent national basis for falls prevention.
